Dwell Home Venice: Part 6

In this series, Sebastian Mariscal designs a home in Venice, California, that brings the outside in. We track the project from start to finish with future resident Michael Sylvester. Part 6, September 2011: Preparing the Footings.

Our house will have concrete slab floors and these are produced in a two step process that involves pouring the trench footings and then pouring the finished slabs. In the slideshow that follws, we take a look at the process.

The outlines of footings are marked on the ground. This is the first 1:1 scale layout of the home, which makes for an interesting walk around the site
